Rex Burkhead to be placed on IR

The Patriots are going to place RB Rex Burkhead on IR with a neck injury Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

After a disappointing start to the season, this would close the door on Burkhead's fantasy relevance in 2018, especially if he's placed on season-ending IR. There hasn't been word of the severity of the neck injury, but it apparently is severe enough to warrant the IR. As a result, Sony Michel will enter Week 4 as the likely leading rusher in New England, while James White figures to continue to see passing-game work.
